Cat Flap Fitter Bootle Merseyside (L20): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your home in Bootle, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence. Cats tend to get grouchy and irritated when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Giving your cat access to the world outside via a cat flap can help keep them mentally and physically fit. If this sounds like a great idea to you, precisely what kind of cat flap should you put in?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give protection from the weather. The vast majority of Bootle cat owners would no doubt prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although this might be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.
Since this solution allows other cats or animals to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that hasn't got a special collar can't access or leave your property. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, because any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your home. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to consider a model of cat flap that recognises your cat's own microchip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits only your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.
Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system these days. This means that it's got the capability to permit only access into your premises, be locked fully, allow only exit from your home, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides you with choices for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. In line with your pet's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the higher end models.
If you have a wood door in your home in Bootle, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be that hard. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BOOTLE
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its security, thermal attributes and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Bootle cat flap installer will measure your current panel and order a brand new one. So the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. You might have a 1 or 2 week wait for this to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new glass panel arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid timber door panels are the easiest option in relation to cat flap installation on your house in Bootle. If you are uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your door, it's advisable to contact an expert to undertake the project for you. This type of undertaking won't be too costly and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed gives you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, because some doors are lined with steel for added security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could choose to install your cat flap into an external wall of your house. This form of installation is certainly better left to an expert, because it requires considerably more skill and equipment to accomplish. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angled access via a pillar can also be achieved. Installation involves a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit your home whenever it desires.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bootle - If you already have a cat flap installed on your window, door or wall, but it is damaged or not operating properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. An expert Bootle cat flap installer will gladly take off your old entry unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the window, door or wall on which it is secured.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing panel that's been pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is vital. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
